My first priority is to make my clients feel like the best version of themselves in front of my camera. Nothing else matters if they don’t like the way they look in their photos. I will direct you through fashion inspired poses, I will place you in the best light and pose you in the most flattering angles. I work closely with my wedding planners and couples to understand the overall vision of their wedding, so that everything from the styling of my flat lays to the selection of their portrait locations all live within that color story and desired aesthetic.

Editorial is the word that is most commonly associated with my work. I want my couples images to look like they are stepping off the pages of Vogue Magazine or Harper's Bazaar. I am inspired by fashion and romantic, Old World– imagery that's authentic & timeless. Throughout your wedding day we will capture a variety of posed images as well as photojournalistic (in the moment) images to create a beautifully curated story of your day.

I love this question. The photography industry is a unique field, you do not have to have any requirements to call yourself a photographer. You will see the same story on many different photography websites that one day the photographer picked up a camera and decided to become a photographer. Now don't get me wrong there are many talented self taught photographers out there. However that is not my story. I am a formally trained photographer, I have an associates degree in photography & fine art. Prior to opening my own studio in 2007 I worked for a prominent commercial photographer and a local wedding photographer. I also worked in a professional photography lab developing film & print. Photography has always been my passion and career path. I love that I get to bring all of my experience and love for this art form to every one of my weddings.

My wedding is in Buffalo, but I live out of town. How do you work with out of town couples? 

Yes I do. Wedding day logistics and timelines are so very important for the wedding day. When you book with me you will receive my Wedding Day Agenda planner. This is an online form that you will fill out as you plan your wedding day. This form will walk you through a typical wedding day. We will work together to create your own perfect wedding day timeline. It is very important to have the right amount of time for each event throughout the day. The last thing you want to feel on your wedding day is rushed. I will help you to create a timeline of events, photo locations, family photos and shot lists.

Your wedding package total will be divided up into four installments. The first installment is your wedding deposit and will book your wedding date with a signed contract. The remaining three installments will be spaced out equally leading up to your wedding day. Instalments can be made online with a credit card or PayPal account, by check, money order or cash. There is no additional charge for credit card payments. 

(Tip: I do recommend asking all wedding vendors if they have a credit card processing fee)

How many photographs will we get and how long does it take?

Nobody wants dark underexposed photographs. I use an intelligent lighting system to give my images a pop of light. These lights are small, wireless and radio connected. They only go off when I press my shutter button to take an image. It will feel as if an on camera flash was going off. You won't even know that they are there. They are balanced to the ambient light in the room, they will not take away from uplighting or candle light. However they do make a HUGE difference in image quality, you will not have dark or under exposed images with me! I also use these lights to capture dramatic night shots at the end of your wedding night

Every wedding day is different, some couples get more images due to the amount of people in their wedding party or at their event. On average my couples get anywhere from 1000 images to 1800. The images you receive are curated edited images. I go through each image, I will cull, crop, color correct, and place my proprietary filters. You will receive your final images in two formats, one way will be on your online private wedding gallery and the other will be on your crystal USB. All delivered images are high resolution and do not have any watermarks on them. They are yours to print, post and share. Full wedding galeries are delivered within 10 weeks of your wedding date. You will receive a handful of my favorites a couple weeks after your wedding.

"We knew we wanted to work with Dana right after we met with her - apart from her amazing photos, she just has such an outgoing and friendly personality that we found to be infectious. I had no real ideas about what I wanted for the day and she took care of everything. I loved her little reminders to everyone to stand up straight and smile big - it makes such a big difference! Everyone in our wedding party commented on how nice and easy going Dana was."
